TinCaps' struggles continue in 9-2 loss

The good feelings generated by the TinCaps’ first series win of the season did not carry over to the road.

Pounded 9-2 on Wednesday by Great Lakes, the TinCaps must win tonight to avoid a four-game sweep.

Jimmy Brasoban rejoined the rotation and was rocked for seven runs on six hits in 2 1/3 innings.

The bats, so good in the sweep of Peoria, have struggled at Dow Diamond in Midland, Mich.

Luis Tejada’s two-run single gave the TinCaps the lead in the second inning.

Aside from that hit, only seven batters reached safely, and one was picked off.

Starter James Campbell pitched five innings Loons (13-6), and Victor Arano finished the last four to earn a save.

The TinCaps (7-11) committed three errors and allowed four runs in the second, three in the third and two in the fourth.

Brasoban struggled with his control, walking a man with the bases loaded in the second and letting another run score on a wild pitch.
